We recently returned from a two-night stay at the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge. My big concern before our stay was whether I should have upgraded to a savannah view to fully appreciate the experience - I had booked a standard room. At check-in, we were put in a room that opened up onto one of the savannas and I was...

We stayed in a one bedroom vacation club room on the sunset savannah. The animals were breath taking. Seeing the giraffe each evening was a highlight. If you stay at Jambo make sure you make your way to Kidani they have a better water slide for older kids and a great spray area. The only negative is the distance from...

This was the first hotel that I got to stay at that was located in the resort of Disney. I was captivated by the architecture of the hotel, the delicious food in the restaurants, the easy accessibility to transfer from park to park and the best and the most exciting thing for me was being able to see the wild...

Disney's AKL offers so much. Our biggest advise is to make sure you schedule at least a few of your vacation days to enjoy the pools, savanna, animal viewing, African designs and art, story telling, and many activities and areas to explore. Plus...there are two areas here to explore with Jambo (our favorite for the hotel look and feel) and...

We've stayed at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge four times over the past five years and we LOVE it! The restaurants serve delicious food, the hotel lobby is impressive, the rooms are nicely appointed, and the opportunities to see the animals on property are amazing, especially if you're traveling with children (which we always are)!

My family of five (kids 8, 5, and 2) really enjoyed our stay at Animal Kingdom Lodge. We never got tired of seeing the animals as we walked to the elevator or around the hotel. The pool was great and we could not have asked for a more friendly staff. It was especially nice to talk to the various staff...

AKL is a great hotel!!! The people at the front desk were very friendly. Our room was very good, and it had a good view of the savannah. We saw plenty of animals and got some good photos of them. The lobby design was also breathtaking, with its African theme throughout. We stayed for 7 days and 6 nights, and...

We stayed here at Club Level as an ending to our vacation. Our previous nights were spent at the Grand Floridian and we enjoyed the Animal Kingdom Lodge just as much as the GF. We stayed in the Jambo House and had a view of the Savannah. Getting the Savannah view room was well worth the price - I recommend...
